Jennifer Lopez is set to star in her upcoming documentary titled Halftime. The superstar’s documentary will stream on Netflix starting June 14. The streaming giant has now released the trailer for her and it has caught our attention.
The trailer gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the real JLo. The documentary focuses especially on the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show and Lopez’s struggle after losing the Oscars for his movie Hustlers.
From the intense 2 minute 39 second trailer, what caught our attention was Jennifer Lopez breaking down and finally opening up about how vulnerable she feels after her 2020 Oscar snub for the 2019 film Hustlers.
The clip shows how excited Jennifer Lopez was about the chances of winning an Oscar for her role as stripper Ramona in the 2019 hit movie Hustlers. She was also seen saying ‘I hope I make it’ to a reporter who asks her about the chances of her winning an Oscar.
Right after that, the next scene in the trailer shows a dejected Jennifer Lopez sobbing on her bed over the nasty Oscar snub. The singer-actress was seen wearing a black robe and holding her phone as she mourned the loss of her. She can be heard saying: “It was difficult,” she reveals, “she just had very low self-esteem.” Later in the trailer, JLo is seen getting ready for a workout at the gym as she energizes herself after the snub, saying, “I really had to figure out who I was and believe in that and not believe in anything else.”
For those unaware of the Oscar snub, in 2020, Jennifer Lopez had given an Oscar-worthy performance (according to critics themselves) in the 2019 film Hustlers, in which she played the role of a stripper named Ramona. As she, the media and her fans eagerly awaited victory, the bad news came that JLo was not nominated for the 2020 Oscars. Instead, the nominees for Best Supporting Actress went to Laura Dern in Marriage Story (winner); Kathy Bates, Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh and Margot Robbie. Best Actress nominees were Renee Zellweger, Cynthia Erivo, Scarlett Johansson, Saoirse Ronan and Charlize Theron. There was no mention of JLo and her movie Hustler, which left her heartbroken.
